Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting two public meetings on the Roxhill Park renovation project. The meeting focusing on the skatespot is Monday, November 14, and the meeting for the play area is Wednesday November 30. Both meetings begin at 6:00 pm at the Southwest Branch Library located at 9010 35th Ave. SW.
At the first meeting, Parks and California Skateparks will present the latest design for the skatespot. The community is invited to view and comment on the skatespot design. A skatespot is smaller than a full skatepark, but large enough to incorporate multiple skateboarding features. The skatespot is expected to be 8,000 square feet. For more information on Seattle skatepark planning please visit http://www.seattle.gov/parks/projects/skatepark.htm.
At the second meeting, Parks will present the proposed design for the play area renovation for Roxhill Park and gather input from the community. Roxhill Park is located at 2850 SW Roxbury St. across from the Target side of Westwood Village, accessible by the #22 and #54 buses.
Funding for this renovation comes from the Parks and Green Spaces Levy that Seattle voters passed in November 2008. The $146 million, six-year levy provides acquisition funding for new neighborhood parks and green spaces and development funding for projects such as improved playfields, reservoir lid parks, renovated playgrounds, community gardens, and safety upgrades at city owned cultural facilities.
